Comments

  • The entrance to the cave that leads to the Valley has been carved in the likeness of Cthulhu's head.
  • In the valley there's a path surrounding a lake with the magical property of preventing zombies from passing over it. This protects the human fishing village from being destroyed by zombie attack.
  • A metal mask with Cthulhu's face grants the wearer several powers, but each time it's put on the wearer must make a SAN roll or lose sanity.
  • The East shrine is dedicated to Cthugha and contains a fiery blade.
